 I':  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  91.��  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast    25- per copy on news stands       January 21,1991      Volume 45      Issue 3  Vigil at Pioneer Park  Youngsters set example  Thursday, January 17, 1991.  ���Joel Johnstone photo  Peace protests break out on Coast  by Joel Johnstone  An outbreak of social consciousness manifested itself on  the Sunshine Coast at virtually  the same time warplanes  prepared to strike Iraq early last  week. The protests persisted  during the days of conflict  which followed.  The demonstrators were  young���disturbed by world  events, undecided about the  rights and wrongs or where they  should stand on issues, some  firmly in the for-or-against  camps of made-up minds, and  others...just there.  Last Tuesday a large contingent of Elphinstone Secondary School students demonstrated their desire for peace by  spontaneously walking out of  classes, taking to the streets with  placards and signs, yelling, waving, and imploring motorists to  honk their horns in support.  Most did.  School officials didn't openly  condone the walkout and, later,  police showed up to keep  students off the highway. The  demonstration itself had its own  moments of tension, generated  by the fact that not all involved  saw eye-to-eye on the issue at  hand.  "I wasn't aware of any pro-  war movement," said Grade 12  student Regan Stevens, "but  there was some yelling and  snowball throwing and some  people giving other people a  hard time for their views. I  think they were just showing  their immaturity."  The majority of students  returned to class that afternoon  but, when evening came,  Dayton Mackenzie, Rhys  Winne and friends set up a  "peace camp" in Pioneer Park,  vowing to remain camped till  war's end, and urging motorists  and passers-by to show support.  "I seriously think there  should be another demonstration," Mackenzie said. "I think  the more peole that do this kind  of thing, the better it will be. It's  difficult to put into words."  But Aprile Dunlop, a Grade 9  enthusiast of Elphinstone's  Peace Committee, says,"If this  many people are against the  war, then we might be able to  prevent another one by doing  what we're doing." The Peace  Committee planned to go to  Vancouver last Saturday to join  a peace rally there.  The Pioneer Park self-  proclaimed "Kids for Peace,"  however, had their share of difficulties. Relentless rain drenched them through and through,  and the next day at noon they  packed up and abandoned  camp after "the bylaw lady"  told them they couldn't stay.  "We went up to Municipal  Hall and they just said forget  it," Mackenzie says. "We just  said Holy geez...I can't believe  it."  Winne says "I feel really bad.  The lady there was really  helpful but the Mayor wasn't  around. When the Mayor gets  Please turn to page 11  At Gibsons Council  Provisional budget released  by Rose Nicholson  Gibsons Council was  presented last week with the  provisional budget which both  Mayor Eric Small and Alderman Margaret Morrison, Chairman of the Finance Committee,  stressed "is not the budget from  which we establish the mill  rate."  "Its real necessity," said  Small, "is to empower the  Town to carry on business for  the moment...There will be  some very substantial changes  to this budget. In our review of  it on a line to line basis, there  were many unanswered questions and we have asked for  staff input on a number of  things. It is certainly not a final  budget."  The provisional budget projects that the Town of Gibsons  should reap some $4.3 million  in total revenues. This figure includes $800,000 collected in the  form of taxes, provincial grants  to the tune of roughly $383,000,  while the $1.15 million garnered  on behalf of other governments  is money which is strictly "passing through" the Town.  Expenditures at this point  break down to some $275,000  for administrative costs, nearly  $434,000 for fire protection,  close to $463,000 for the  Aquatic Center, and that elusive  $1.15 million which was collected on behalf of other  governments. Miscellaneous expenses make up the balance.  In further discussion of  financial   matters,   Alderman  Morrison reported that a final  figure of $12 per square foot  had been established as rental  charges for the Health Unit, effective January 1, 1991.  "The previous rental of $3.96  a square foot, established some  time ago, was quite out of keeping with present rates," said  Morrison "They have been subsidized fo quite some time. We  feel justified in asking that they  pay a reasonable rent."  "The BC Building Corporation has been paying that  amount in other areas," added  Mayor Small. "The Health Unit  benefits not only Gibsons, but  the entire Sunshine Coast, and  in fact stretches from Powell  River to Pemberton."  In a quick update on the  natural gas negotiations, Small  told aldermen that a revised  proposed agreement had been  received. "I have not had the  opportunity to read it yet," he  said, "but it has been drawn up  with a lot of input from both  our lawyers and interested  engineers who are representing  a whole group of municipalities.  A further draft should be coming in the next few days."  Small went on to say lhal  "I'm feeling much more comfortable that Gibsons is going to  get gas, and I think we are going  to gel a reasonable agreement."  There has been some confusion over funding for the new  Gibsons fire truck. "This Council and staff have been under the  Please turn to page 11  Up go  ferry  fares  Ferry fares on all of BC Ferries' 25 routes will go up on  February 1, 1991.  Rita Johnston, Minister of  Transportation and Highways  and minister responsible for BC  Ferries, in announcing the new  rates, said that the 1991 fares  would help to cover rising  operational costs including the  recent collective agreement, rising fuel costs, and the costs incurred by the new grants in lieu  payments that the corporation  will be making to municipalities  where there is a BC Ferries  presence. At the same time, the  minister said that the corpora-  lion will be improving services  through its vessel construction  and acquisition program.  "BC Ferries is facing increased costs in 1991 of approximately $15 million. The new tariff  will bring in about $11 million.  Notwithstanding the increase in  fares, the corporation must continue to receive $51 million  from general tax revenue," said  Johnston.  "That means that all provincial taxpayers, regardless of  where they live in British Columbia, contribute toward the  operation of the ferry system.  The increase in ferry fares  means that the actual users of  the system pay a reasonable  portion of the cost of the fleet's  operation. Even with the rate  increase, it continues to be a  bargain to travel by ferry in  British Columbia."  On major routes, the regular  passenger fares will go up 25  cents. Car fares will go up $1.25  and commercial vehicle fares  will go up 20 cents a foot.  Rates on the Sunshine Coast  will also be raised to $24.00 per  round trip from the present  $22.50.  "The new fare for overheight  vehicles on the major routes will  be $24.50 ��� a $1.50 increase  for a one-way trip," said the  minister.  "For the third year in a row,  there will be no increase ��� on  the major routes ��� in the  regular fare for children, ages  five to 11. li will remain at  $2.25."  The minister said that any  elementary or secondary school  student, travelling with school  authorization on school-  sponsored events, will continue  to receive a fare reduction.  "BC Ferries continues lo offer BC residents over 65 years of  age no-cost passenger travel on  the Vancouver Island ���  Mainland and Gulf Island  routes from Monday to Thursday, except statutory holidays,"  said Johnston.  "And I know that everyone  will be pleased to hear that there  is no GST on ferry fares."  BC Ferries 1991 Fare  brochures, listing all ihe fares  for iheir 25 routes, will be  available al BC Ferries offices,  on board vessels, and al major  Information Centres.  Sechelt super committees out  MacLarty modifies structures  by Stuart Burnside  Sechelt Mayor Nancy  MacLarty's long promised intention to phase out the "Super  Committee" structure (presently in place in Sechelt to oversee  many of the operating functions  of the municipality), became a  reality at a special council  meeting, January 16.  The super committee concept  was a result of the Cuff Report,  commissioned by the previous  council, and MacLarty, who  campaigned on the idea of  reducing government spending  on the municipal level, told the  Coast News that removing the  super committee structure was  an   important   way   of  ac  complishing this goal. "Sechelt  is too small for this kind of  structure," she said.  The super committee idea  essentially put the control of  various municipal functions  under the directorship of a few  individuals who���in turn-  reported to the town administrator, while the administrator reported to the  council members at town council meetings.  Alderman Michael Shanks  protested the motion to rescind  the initial creation of the super  committees, saying, "The  previous council spent $14,000  of taxpayers' money on the  report that recommended the  creation of the super commit  tees," inferring that the investment shouldn't be written off so  readily.  Also sparking a reaction  from Shanks was a separate  motion advanced by MacLarty  that would rescind the position  of one of the directorships, lhal  of the Director of Engineering.  The Director of Engineering  is Derek Ashford, of Ashford  and Associates. Shanks implied  that certain members of the  pressure group 'Enough is  Enough' were somehow involved in an effort to get rid of  Ashford as they perceived him  to be an obstacle to developers  and Ihe subdivision by-law requirements.  Shanks stated that he believes  there is a direct connection between MacLarty and 'Enough is  Enough', "because of the timing involved here."  MacLarty said that Ashford,  being a private consultant, commanded a $55 an hour fee. She  said she thought that was "too  much money" and claimed  Ashford agreed.  She added that she respected  Ashford's abilities and that this  did not reflect on him as an  engineer, implying that his firm  would be in a good position to  receive future municipal contracts. In the end, both motions  carried with the only opposition  coming from Shanks,  ON THE INSIDE  Debating growth Page2  Letters to the Editor Pages 3&23  School Board bears load Page 12  Bypass value questioned Page 13  Saga of Society Red Page 14  Long John Baldty tribute Page 15  Coastuiords Page 17  No hope  for homestead  Sechelt Council's January 9 decision to look into the  feasibility of acquiring the log homestead building off  Highway 101 In Wilson Creek has fallen through due to the  possibility of the building falling in.  According to an examination of the building by the town's  building inspector, the building is "beyond hefp...It should be  demolished.''  The building, because it Is potentially a heritage building,  will be stored by the developers of the Wilson Creek site in  Roberts Creek until its ultimate fate can be decided.  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945 2 Coast News, January 21,1991  comment  I  I  Debating growth  During the recent election campaign, candidates running for all manner of offices were largely in agreement  when it came to the issue of growth and development  along the Sunshine Coast.  These thoughtful men and women, many of whom now  hold office, made it clear that they were in favour of slow,  reasonable, and well-planned growth which, above all,  look into account al all stages the fragile nature of our  area's socio-environmental lifestyle.  Every indication was���and is���thai the vast majority of  the Sunshine Coast's 20,000-odd residents see eye to eye  with their political representatives and leaders al least on  this most pivotal of issues.  We were, therefore, surprised and somewhat disappointed when a local publication saw fit lo plump for one  lype of Coastal development and growth which runs  precisely counter to what a solid consensus appears to  favour.  In an editorial extolling the virtues and potential bonanza which they see as a direct by-product of the highly-  controversial passenger-only ferry service we might be gelling (whether we need or want it), this publication expressed surprise to find out that "...no-one seems to be absolutely in favour of the service and fhat (Liberal leader)  Gordon Wilson is dead against it."  Yet, despite this late-blooming revelation, the editorial  goes on lo wax enthusiastic about how a "...walk-on service to the Sunshine Coast...could spawn a host of money-  spinning services to Gibsons and Sechelt."  Indeed, but al what cost? Is promoting "package deals"  from downtown Vancouver to the Sunshine Coast by  hordes of daytripping tourists the kind of responsible approach to the commercial exploitation of our area which  most of us say we would support?  We doubl whether mosl Coasl business people are  lusting after the fast buck either. For, if they were, they'd  be conducting business where the pickings were already  more plentiful. It is our suspicion lhal business people here  are as interested in quality of life as much as (if not more  than) mere profit.  The editorial in the other paper laments how "...unpopular the drive to Horseshoe Bay is with travellers  fighting for space with the every day commuter, on and  off Ihe ferry."  Good grief! If it's thai much of a tribulation lo reach  the Sunshine Coast, why on earth did some 75,000 visitors  lo our area last year even bother lo make the effort?  A high-speed, passenger-only ferry would make the  Coast much more easily accessible, and we believe this is  not a good thing for ihe area, for its residents, and,  paradoxically enough, not for ihe visitors eilher.  When you make il too easy to bring large numbers of  people to an area which is vulnerable lo high-density  human and vehicular traffic, you run ihe risk of destroying  those very aspects and attributes of the area which attracted people to if in the first place.  -from our files ���  We Remember When  5 YEARS AGO  Chief of the Capilanos, Simon Baker, or Chief Khot-la  Cha, which means Chief Kindly Heart, visited the  Sechelt Indian Band to celebrate the occasion of his  75th birthday.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  la: 1 Year t��; a Morula utr. Fwajgo 11���, m  Flashback at flashpoint  I am writing this column at a  point in time which is last Friday morning for you.  I am writing it without any of  my usual enthusiasm, without  the sense that I have anything  particularly, important to say,  because my entire being feels  supersaturated with this war  which nobody claims to have  wanted yet everyone helped  bring about.  I am overwhelmed with a  futility which bears much in  common with the concrete  boots supplied to endgame victims of certain American  criminal elements. No matter  what my spirit seeks to do in its  woebegone attempts to detach  and soar beyond the surreal  trip passing for life on this  planet at the moment, I am  forced to bear witness and participate in my own micro-mini-  manner.  My futility carries with it a  strong nostalgic component.  Approaching Gibsons I was suf  fused with a flashback to  another Canadian winter 32  years ago.  There I was along with a  small band of compatriots, all  of us fledgling members of the  equally fledgling Canadian  Universities Committee for  Nuclear Disarmament  (CUCND), hanging off the edge  of the sidewalks of beautiful  downtown London, Ontario,  shivering as much from the anxiety induced by what we were up  to as from the bluster and chill  of a snowbelt afternoon.  We were engaged in an activity designed to wake up the herd  and stampede it into giving up  its self-imposed ignorance as to  the real nature and threat of  nuclear energy ��� be it "Atoms  For Peace" or atoms for  Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  What a joke! One is and remains a member of a herd  almost solely for the false sense  of solidarity, security, and commonality of shared illusions any  mass of people with a taboo  against non-conformity of  thought, action, and feeling can  bring about through the tyranny  of numbers and numbness.  I can see myself in my eight-  foot scarf, jeans, parka and  crewcut, mv picket sign clutched Lancelot-like in my crabbed,  quasi-hypothermic hand.  Passersby don't call out support  and encouragement to us. They  spit at us from their own fear-  wormed existences, call us  "Communists!", and one  Western Ontario redneck comes  at us with his pickup, a feint  which causes us to scatter  momentarily.  But futility didn't lay a glove  on me that day ��� not for a  nanosecond. Hell, I was 17.  This was my first serious stab at  enlightening and changing the  world, and I can still feel the  adrenaline, the electric sense of  higher purpose, the com-  araderie that came with the territory of rebellion and dissent  we claimed as our own that  frosty day in London.  And my all-pervasive belief in  the efficacy of dissent and protest as the best means for attaining the liberation of conditioned  and self-enslaved minds, in the  secure knowledge that universal  clarity, awareness, right-  thinking and right action will  certainly follow, still abides  within me, still keeps me from  throwing in the towel and ...  And what?  Becoming a card-carrying  merr ir of the herd? Good  griel! At times it is virtually impossible to simply share the  same pasture without wanting  to sneak over and lace the  waterhole with Anthrax juice. I  mean, euthanasia is finally gaining a foothold in the "Okay"  column of the mass consciousness, so probably I would  get off with a warning.  Well, this is one of the voices  futility assumes, I suppose ���  that of a kid of 17, feeling  powerless and rageful, whistling  his way past the graveyard of  collective humanity and not being able to shake off the ghosts  in pursuit.  Making the descent of the  slippery slope known as School  Road, clutching down to second  and wondering in passing  whether this morning's the morning I wind up on Keats, I hear  the fruity, simpering John  Wayne inflections of George  Bush:  "When this is over," intones  the Supreme Commander of the  New World Order, "I want us  to be the healers."  What a perfect obscenity.  We had to destroy the planet  to save it?

A narrow wind complains all day  How some one treated him;  Nature, like us. Is sometimes caught  Without her diadem.  In a nutshell  Competitive bird feeding  by S. Nutter  We were living at one time  for a while in a small community on a picturesque river with  rapids and slate cliffs about a  hundred miles out of Toronto.  It was really quite a sweet place,  mostly built of weatherbeaten  rose-coloured brick, with antique shops and tea rooms and  great 'home-cooking' bakeries,  and the county's best butcher,  and potters' studios, and a  cheerful, well-stocked well-  attended inn. Well, all in all,  you could pretty well say it had  the lot.  We lived by the river a couple  of miles from the town, on one  of the slate escarpments, with a  deck cantilevered out over the  river itself. From a corner of the  house I'd stretched a leather  thong attached to a Sycamore  tree, and from it at just the right  place I'd hung an old pewter  cake dish with one of those  looped handles they had. This  was our bird feeder.  A simple and not inelegant  device perhaps, but it  represented victory at the end of  a longish and bitterish struggle  with the considerable squirrel  population. They would still  come around, some of them,  and perch on the railing and  gaze at the dish and whip  themselves into a fury of  frustration but it was hopeless.  The occasional Olympic class  nutkin would show up, hunker  down wilh total concentration,  launch and actually touch the  dish but of course it would just  swing away. A small war of  course, but our victory was  complete.  Not so with our neighbour, a  widow lady who lived alone.  Neat and well-ordered, she kept  to herself and (maybe after one  of our parties) had made it clear  that is what she liked. One morning though, when I was up early, there was the sound next  door of shots ringing out. I  moved along the driveway to  where I could see through the  hedge. She was out on her lawn  in her nightie, long grey hair  streaming down, banging away  in all directions, but quite expertly, with a .22.  I gave a bit of a cough and  said "Mrs. Lawson, you are  shooting at the squirrels."  She turned to me with her  teeth clenched. "Goddammit"  she said, "they're eating my  birdseed."  There was, of course, a really  lovely lot of birds and much  birdsong. We had a pair of  herons feed often across from  the place. One winter we had a  lone goose out on the ice and  fed him for a couple of months.  And then there was the matter  of the cardinals.  We had had a couple of cardinals before in Toronto and  had kept them around as long  as we were there, feeding them  on sunflower seeds. For some  time in Fergus/Eloi a we saw no  cardinals anywhere, then one  day a couple turned up. They lit  in a tree, eyed our dish, and  moved along. We got ourselves  some sunflower seeds.  Sure enough in a couple of  days they were back, and after  that they were back every day,  and a handsome sight they  made swinging away on the old  dish just outside the living room  window. Friends coming in  were sometimes fair entranced.  It had not occurred to us of  course that these cardinals,  while gracing our place, were  therefore depriving the environment of their presence  somewhere else. But one night  at the inn, a large and comely  friend called Betty, speaking at  the bar, was complaining that  'her' cardinals didn't come  around any more.  Someone said that we had  cardinals at our place, and Betty  asked my lady, pointblank, if  we were doing anything specially to feed them.  I was of course about to say  'sunflower seeds' but my lady  shot me a look. "Oh," she said  evenly, "nothing really I guess.  Sometimes we put out a little  popcorn." (We did, but not for  the cardinals.)  "Popcorn?" said Betty.  My lady raised her glass and  shot me another laser over the  rim. "Buttered, of course," 1  said.  I am not a particularly competitive type myself but for  some time I had been coming  aware that this laid back little  town was actually rife with the  stuff. We had been to a Sunday  morning party which turned out  to be a serious omelette-making  competition. Competitive bird-  feeding though did seem about  the end.  ' * "��� ���*���'���*r-  " " z. T. T  m   ��� il," '���  ���   - ~" A    ���" --��� ^���a^Se^m  Coast News, January 21,1991  <Lette.UL to- the, Cditol cl"m * e*  The ultimate root cause of war?  Editor:  In the face of mobilization  for war, it seems to me the  single greatest problem in the  world is how we raise our  children. It is the ability to feel  that enables us to see what is going on around us. We cannot  learn from experience if we are  not allowed to feel and instead  we spend our lives protecting  ourselves from pain, and  ultimately from the truth.  The knowledge of the  devastating effects of the  traumatization of children���if  disseminated widely enough-  should lead to fundamental  changes in society, above all to  a halt in the blind escalation of  violence.  Alice Miller, in her book, The  Untouched Key, traces  childhood trauma in creativity  and destructiveness. The  following points amplify her  meaning:  Creeker convenes  1. All children are born to  grow, to develop, to live, to  love, and to articulate their  needs and feelings for their self-  protection.  2. For their development  children need the respect and  protection of adults who take  them seriously, love them, and  honestly help them to become  oriented in the world.  3. When these vital needs are  frustrated and children are instead abused for the sake of  adults' needs, by being exploited, beaten, punished, taken  advantage of, manipulated,  neglected, or deceived without  the intervention of any witness,  then their integrity will be  lastingly impaired.  4. The normal reactions to  such injury should be anger and  pain. Since children in this hurtful kind of environment,  however, are forbidden to ex  press their anger and since it  would be unbearable to experience their pain all alone,  they are compelled to suppress  their feelings, repress all  memory of the trauma, and  idealize those guilty of the  abuse.  5. Disassociated from the  original cause, their feelings of  anger, helplessness, dispair,  longing, anxiety, and pain will  find expression in destructive  acts against others or against  themselves.  6. If these people become  parents, they will often direct  acts of revenge for their  mistreatment in childhood  against their own children. It is  a tragic fact that parents beat  their children in order lo escape  the emotions stemming from  how ihey were treated by their  own parents.  7. Our sensitization to the  cruelty with which children are  r*J  treated, until now commonly  denied, and to the consequences  of such treatment will, as a matter of course, bring to an end  the perpetuation of violence  from generation to generation.  8. People whose integrity has  not been damaged in childhood,  who were protected, respected,  and treated with honesty by  their parents, will be���both in  their youth and adulthood���intelligent, responsive,  empathetic, and highly sensitive.  They will take pleasure in life  and will not feel any need to kill  or even hurt others or  themselves. Since it will not  have to be their unconscious  life-task to ward off intimidation experienced at a very early  age, they will be able to deal  with attempts at intimidation in  (heir adult life more rationally  and more creatively.  Kasandra Harfield  Please turn to page 23  So you've written your letters, signed the petitions, made  the political protests���another  way to show your opposition to  war comes from the latest Voice  of Women newsletter which  says���  "A movement is growing in  the northeast United States to  express concern and hope for  peace in Iraq. People are asked  to put a lighted candle in the  front window of their house  every Friday evening, the  Muslim day of rest, and con-  until the crisis is  over.  The message of these candles  is 'Please understand that we do  not want to be the enemies of  the Iraqi people. Instead of Holy War can we, as neighbours,  build a just and lasting peace?"  If enough of us, across the  continent, showed our concern  in this simple way, maybe the  message would get across to the  Iraqi people and we could he)p  light a way to peace.

I am putting forward as a  possible agenda, the following  items:  1. A personal sharing of how  this Mideast war has impacted  on our lives thus far.  2. What are some of the ways  this war could impact our lives  here on the Sunshine Coast in  the coming weeks, months and,  perhaps, years?  3. How could this community  respond to a possible influx of  American war resisters?  4. What about declaring the  Sunshine Coast a "sanctuary"  for    American    political  dissenters and refugees?  5. What if sometime down the  line Canada institutes a military  conscription? What are our options and how do we protect our  children?  6. What about announcing and  organizing a mass rally here on  the Sunshine Coast?  As a father with a 21 year old  son, and as a human being who  feels compassion and sorrow  for all those involved in the  nightmare events unfolding,  calling for this meeting is also  my response partially to the  spontaneous outpouring of  anger and concern on the part  of young people who took to  the streets of the Sunshine  Coast as soon as the hostilities  broke out.

We  cannot   simply  claim that all this is the fault of  some insane madman, of some  personification of the devil. Jf  there really is a Satan then he  must be laughing at all of us.'  I do not believe in the devil.! I  believe only lhal we humans are  stumbling in darkness. An otd  Chinese proverb that is the mo}-  lo of Amnesty International  says "Better to light a candje  than curse the darkness." Next  Tuesday at the vigil let us all  light a candle. '.

The first comment carried in  an editorial suggested that I was  lacking in positive input with  regard to improved transportation service on the Sunshine  Coasl. The second comment  came from our local MLA who  suggested that opposition to the  provincial government using tax  payers' money to implement  such a service was strictly  political.  On the first score, I would  point out that over the last six  years, I have been directly involved in not only providing a  strong lobby for the upgrading  and retention of our ferry service, but also as a member of  the Board of the Community  Services Association working  with the local transportation  committee for the provision of  para-transit and public transit  on the Coast.  On the second point, let me  say thai if this issue has become  political, it is because Mr. Long,  a member of the Board of BC  Ferries, has chosen to make il  so.  I have no objection to private  enterprise offering fast  passenger-only service to Vancouver, I simply do not believe  that it is financially feasible. If it  was, I believe that we would  have the service in place today.  What I am opposed to is the use  of four lo six million dollars of  taxpayers' money to subsidize a  private service when there are  very real needs for the  upgrading of the existing ferry  service which already accom  modates both walk-on and vehicle traffic.  I am currently working hard  to get a hazardous cargo sailing,  working hard to expand the  transit service on Ihe Coasl so  that our citizens have transit to  and from our commercial and  health care facilities. Either one  of those two needs would be a  better use of four or six million  of our tax dollars, than the subsidization of a service that will  be very expensive, and thus  serve only very few.

Not an  exclamation of Batman's assi-  tant, but a recollection, a grand-  fatherly one, of recycling in a  small way 60 or 70 years ago.  Today, as we slowly realize,  not just the benefits of recycling, bul the need of it to  preserve our surroundings, saving bits of string may sound  ridiculous.  But those years ago parcels  were deftly tied with string by  the grocer or the drygoods  clerk. Saved bit by bit and rolled into a ball, the string was a  hand for gardening needs, for  tying a bandage around a  finger, to make a snare for a  small boy lo set out at a gopher  burrow.  Nowadays, recycling may  seem to many of us to be some  kind of civic duty and the  economic value somewhat  vague. But as the need for  recycling grows���chiefly to  reduce the mounds of waste we  produce���surely we can put  ourselves out enough to stack  newspapers, de-label and wash  glass discards, do the same with  tins, and find time in our tight  timetables to deliver these to the  Gibsons Recycling Depot. Really, we cannot afford not to.  What to take to the Recycling  Depot?  Cardboard; newspapers;  ledger and computer paper;  glass containers; tin and  aluminum. Get the details of  what to do with materials from  ihe depot:  The Gibsons Recycling Depot  is operated by a society of  volunteers, SCRAPPS, and by  the Super Valu store. There are  attendants at the depot Monday  through Friday, their wages  shared by Super Valu and the  Society. Weekends, volunteers  are on hand.  Since the Society does not yet  have a large membership, the  President, Alison LeDuc, says  that volunteer help is urgently  needed at the depot. Call her at  886-8400.  The need for volunteer help  becomes clear when we learn the  depot has already collected, in  its less than three months in  operation: cardboard, 27 tons  of it; newsprint, II tons; ledger  etc. paper, 1.5 tons; glass, nine  tons; tin cans, two tons;  aluminum, 400 pounds.  The depot project is financed  in part by Environment Canada  (45 per cent), and Super Valu  (35 per cent). The remaining 20  per cent comes from other Gibsons businesses and individual  persons who give valuable time  and skills. Peninsula Transport,  for example, donates the services of the tractor and driver to  haul the trailer loads to the  Lower Mainland.  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  has offered $6000 toward the  purchase of a needed second  trailer.  Alison points out that  SCRAPPS and the Gibsons  Rotary Club's project of  Christmas tree shredding certainly added a great deal to  public awareness of recycling.  Now we've caught the idea,  let's bear with the nuisance of  collecting recyclable materials in  carports or basements, and  separating and delivering them  in any quantity the next time  you visit the mall.  And no garbage, please!  Take only materials the depot  can handle. "When in doubt,  leave it out" is the depot slogan.  Check with the attendant.  And do not unwind any of  grandfather's great ball of string.   No   tying   of   bundles,  please.  HONK FOR PEACE  When I passed by you last  week, your sodden sign sagging  in the rain, I didn't honk, but I  did remember. Remembered  another time long past like this  one.  1 believe I know how you  young folk feel. Angry and  helpless? Victims of another's  errors?  That September day in 1939  when the voice on the radio  said, "Canada is al war..." all  of us who were young felt our  hearts sink.  War only meant dead or  maimed. That's what we had  heard through the years of  childhood. Our death notices  were published already, it seemed.  "Why is it always the  young?" you ask.  I found my answer. You will  have, each one of you, to find  yours.  | T  aama0bM>*-.t  Announces  the opening ol  a new  Public  Accounting  Practice  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  AT  So.view Market  in Roberts Creek  "A Friendly People Piece"  Come in to a Friendly Cafe  Relax and Enjoy  A superbly satisfying  meal  ���A "famous" Harbour Cafe  home made dessert  ���Great service from peoi  who care  THE  BIGGEST LITTLE STORE  Past Ken's Lucky Dollar  Variety JJ* FOODS  Gibsons Landing  886-2936  YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND AT  DocksfDe   (''- -     .

"From time to time I feel  constipated. I don't want to  become dependent on laxatives, so I keep changing  brands. Will this help?"  Not realty, what you need to do  is to make sure you have regular  bowel habits ��� without the use of  laxatives.  Normal bowel habits  vary gready from one person to another and can range  from 3 bowel movements a day  to 3 a week. You are in the best  position to know when your  schedule is off for some reason  Occasional constipation may  be caused by travel, emotional  stress, or an upset in your normal, daily routine-for example,  not drinking enough liquids. II  can be safely relieved with a  laxative  Chronic constipation is different The problem will not go  away overnight. II requires a  change in lifestyle.  If chronic constipation is  your problem, consult your  doctor. You will need a high  fibre diet, an exercise program,  and a scheduled phase-out of lax  alive use while you re establish  belter bowel habits Most people  need to drink at least 8 lo loglas  ses of fluids a day under any cir  cumstances  Laxative products are  often overused or abused.  This can lead to a dependence  upon the laxative.

They  increase bulk in the intestines  much like high fibre foods do  Metamucil*. Cilrucel* and  Fibyrax* are examples of bulk-  forming agents They take up to  3 days to become fully effective  It is important to drink at least  one cup of liquid with each dose  of a bulk forming laxative.  stool-softeners, such as  Colacc*. soften dry, hard fecal  masses. They work within 24 to  48 hours Again, drink plenty of  fluids  Hyperosmotics encourage  bowel movements by drawing  water in the bowel from the surrounding body tissues, euro  Mag* and Epsom salts are familiar examples.  Mineral oil is a lubricant. Fre  quent use of this product has adverse effects because it can  hinder the normal absorption of  nutrients and vitamins into your  system.  Contact laxatives stimulate the  muscle contractions that move  along the fecal mass. These laxatives are the most likely to pro  duce adverse effects.

If you're one who  looks for educational enhancement near to home, there's a  variety of classes offered right  here in the Creek. Four to nine  year olds who desire physical  activity in a smooth, coordinated manner may find gymnastics on Tuesday nights in the  gym fits the bill. Ms De Los  Santos is the excellent instructor.  Adults can warm up and get  fit by playing a little badminton  Monday nights, also in the gym.  The participants are all ages and  abilities, and drop-ins are encouraged. So, if you enjoy badminton, join the fun.  Beekeeping may attract those  interested in honey and maintaining nature's pollination  troops. The instructor, Kevin  McEvoy will lecture Wednesday  nights at the school and hold  practical work with bees at his  own apiary.  Environmental concerns and  present trends with respect to  trees will be the focus of the  Tree   Preservation   class   on  Wednesday evenings at the  school. With slides, Lena Warrington, founder of North Shore  Citizens for Trees, will present  some environmental problems  threatening trees and also some  solutions.  Bid those dull winter evenings  begone by learning beginning  bridge from Sandy McBride on  Wednesday evenings in the  small community use room.

The Recording Workshop on  Wednesday evenings is for those  who want to experience hands-  on multitrack recording in a  professional recording studio.  Michael Lacoste is also teaching  beginning and intermediate  guitar on Tuesday nights. To  have such a facility available for  education is a rare opportunity  in a small community.

GOLDEN LIFELINES  ���Stuart Burnside photo  Cross country ski delights  by Joyce Ostry  When downhill skiing  becomes loo difficult for one  reason or another, crosscountry skiing is an ideal opportunity to remain active, experience Ihe beauty of the outdoors and socialize with people  who share a common love of  nature.  It is suggested that lessons are  the way to begin. This type of  skiing takes no special skills. If  you can walk, you can crosscountry ski. Build up your  stamina gradually. The only  limitation is that should you  fall, and you certainly will, you  are able to get back up by  yourself.  Sigge Bjorklund, of Sigge's  Sport Villa, advises beginners to  lake four to eight hours of  lessons. He introduces crosscountry ski techniques to his  students on flat terrain until  they have perfected the glide  which is very similar to skating.  The glide is the essence of  cross-country skiing and can be  easily learned in just a few  hours of practice.  Best of all, learning lo cross  country ski is not expensive.  Lessons at Manning Park, for  example, average about $50, including transportation (there  and back from Vancouver),  rental of equipment and trail  fees. All a person has to bring is  warm clothing and a bag lunch.  The advantage to this approach is that beginners don't  have to invest a lot in equipment, until they decide whether  or not ski touring is for them.  But most people do enjoy the  experience, going on from  lessons and rentals to purchasing their own equipment.  Like everything else today,  ski touring equipment is not  cheap, but it does make sense to  buy the best your budget allows.  An average beginner's package  ranges from about $250 to $325.  This includes non-wax skis, bindings, poles and boots.  Boots are the most important  part of a ski package. They  must be snug without cutting  off circulation. The clothing  must move with you���and more  than one layer is preferable. For  downhill skiing, I always used  two pair of mittens.  Always    ski    with    so  meone���the buddy system is the  safe way.  BRANCH NEWS  With colds and flu going  round it's sometimes hard to gel  going again.

The shock and horror of the  mayhem being inflicted on  fellow human beings is beyond  comprehension. We feel a churning of the stomach, a nausea  which will not go away.  No matter which "Side" one  is on, it just doesn't seem to be  much in the way of heroics for a  super power to cut lose horrendous weapons on a small country about the size of Idaho.  Those of us who have had the  terrible experience of carrying  gas masks and running into air  raid shelters for protection at  the sound of a siren, know exactly what this is like. We also  know the terror of bombs exploding around us destroying  buildings and killing thousands  of people.  Therefore, our thoughts are  very much with the civilians of  all nations who are being forced  to deal wilh this horror.

We recently paid a visit to the  Post Office at Milore Nursery  and were pleased to see the nice  new store in operation. It is  good for we Halfmoon Bay folk  to have a convenience store  both in Halfmoon Bay and in  Welcome Woods. Wonder what  the next addition will be ��� a  church or a pub?  MF.SSY WHARF:  It was brought to our attention by some folk who were  having a walk on a sunny Sunday afternoon along the government wharf in Halfmoon Bay.  Apparently, the dog mess was  quite disgusting. These people  counted 16 large dog messes on  the wharf. Little kids were running around and getting il all  over their shoes and spreading it  around. I wonder who would  lake their dog there and allow  this to happen, or who are the  folk who let their dogs run  around lose to do it wherever. A  nasty business!  CHEER UP:  To get to a happier note. The  notes of the bagpipe to be  precise. The little kids of Halfmoon Bay School, whose bus  comes to pick them up at 11 am  to take them home, got a big  surprise and thrill when the bus  driver, Gordon Webb, came out  of the bus dressed in his full  Highland regalia, placed his  bagpipes on his shoulder and  piped the kids on to the bus.  That was something to go home  and tell mum about.

How is it that we are able to  co-exist here in Egmont, in luxurious peace, while a lot of the  rest of the world seems to be  plotting its own demise?  Naturally, there is the occasional unfortunate incident that  we have to stumble over, but in  the big picture, our problems  are small. We have plenty of  fresh air, fresh water, wildlife,  and spectacular scenery  abounds. The community of  Egmont is friendly and helpful  above and beyond the call of  duty.  It is quite a twist of fate that  enables us to live in a place  where the threat of all-out war  is about as far away as it can  gel. Not that this conflict  doesn't affect us all in some  way, but I am very thankful to  be able to sleep at night and  know that when I wake up, the  only thing that will be different  is the weather.  Speaking of the weather,  which I usually do, it looks like  my team of weather forecasters  were a little off on their predictions and that's just fine wilh  me. I don't mind snow and  winter conditions for Christmas, but after that I'd like to  imagine that spring is on its  way. There have been some  beautiful sunsets recently. (And  probably sunrises too, but we  don't gel to enjoy them from  our vantage point.)  I ran into Vera Grafton who  is staying in Sechell for a little  while for some visits to St.  Mary's Hospital. She's not  quite ready to come home yet,  but she's doing very well. In the  meantime, John Dafoe is filling  in for her down at the Government Dock so all is taken care  of.  UNITED NATIVE NATIONS  There will hp n meeting of the  United Native Nations at the  Egmont School on January 29  at 6:30 pm. They will have applications for people trying to  regain their status.

The answer is yes, for two  reasons. First, the adjuster for each party  serves as an impartial representative in the  claims process. And, second, since most  claims are totally paid by Autoplan, the  adjusters have no reason to favour either  side. After considering every element of a  case, both adjusters use their experience  and expertise to reach an equitable settlement. Anything less would be unfair to the  claimant. But to offer more would be  equally unfair to some two million other  ICBC policyholders whose premiums are  affected by rising claims costs.  o i    1. R I  (  Oil   M I, i \  Last year, 81% of the people surveyed who  had property damage claims were satisfied  with their settlements. 98% of injury claims  were settled out of court.

Their night-long vigil did not  go unnoticed. RCMP officers  brought the students blankets in  the dead of night, and gave  them quarters for the pay phone  "in case there was any trouble,"  Winne says. "A couple of ladies  offered us a dry room to sleep  in, a guy bought us breakfast at  Truffles, Prontos gave us a couple of large pizzas and a lady  brought us doughnuts."  Each evening afterwards,  students have stood vigil in  Pioneer Park, their numbers  growing as the tempo of the war  they were protesting increased.  "I think it's really great,"  MacKenzie says. "We've gone  from four people to 40 in three  days. We get a lot of sarcasm  and people driving by yelling  'war', though."  The mood was more somber  at Chatelech Secondary.  "The principal didn't like the  idea of a walkout," says Student Council President  Katherine Denham. Instead,  students took part in a  province-wide "stand-up" in  class at 11 am, Tuesday, and  previous to that, they had faxed  their peace message to Prime  Minister Brian Mulroney.  "For me, I believe in peace,"  says Denham. "My parents  were hippies. My mother was  arrested for protesting. I believe  secondary students are more  aware and there is a social  allowance for them to speak  out.  "They're learning from their  parents that war doesn't resolve  anything. If I had wanted to do  a walkout, I would have gone  ahead and done it. But I don't  have to do it as anything other  than one person."  Co-president Carta Wellings  adds to that, saying "Definitely  people are allowed to speak out  more now than in the sixties.  Secondary students are learning  more about war and the effects  of war. I'm really disappointed  our country has become involved in war, taking sides with the  United States. I just know from  Elphinstone and friends around  me that people aren't into war,  and think about it a lot."  Chatelech Principal Jack  Pope asked students to refrain  from demonstrating, and they  acceded to his wishes. "We  At Gibsons Council  Continued from page I  impression that the money to  pay for it was being raised by  the Regional District," explained Small. "It now turns out that  this is not so."  Small went on to say that  there were two options, ��� "we  can go to referendum,...or, as  our auditor suggests, fund it  from our accumulated surpluses  and recover it from the West  Howe Sound Fire Department,  which is in turn funded by both  the Town and the Regional  District.  "Needless to say, the supplier  is anxious to get his money. I'm  the one who has been dragging  his feet on signing the cheque  until I knew where the money  was coming from. My banking  background is showing."  Council adopted a by-law  that would allow it to set  meeting dates other than the  first and third Tuesdays of the  month. Mayor Small explained  that this was to avoid previous  problems where "action was  taken by Council and later  challenged in court because it  wasn't a properly constituted  meeting." The by-law also provides for a question period at  the end of meetings.  Mayor Small told Aldermen  that five groups had submitted  proposals to the Ferry Corpor-  tion to provide the fast ferry  commuter service. "The terms  were that the ferry would land  at the Seabus Terminal in Vancouver," he said, "and the  words were, 'at the other end to  land in Gibsons'."  "I have confirmed that there  have been no discussions or inquiries, either with the Town of  Gibsons or with the harbour  master by either the ferries, the  Department of Highways, nor  the people proposing the bids. I  have some difficulty knowing  how these five people came up  with proposals without having  at least made some preliminary  inquiries as to where they are  going to land a commuter ferry  on this end.  "This Council would probably prefer to see it land at  Langdale, at least until there are  far better facilities for it to land  in Gibsons. We have a great  concern about the congestion it  would create if it were to land in  Gibsons now."  FREE SEMINAR!

There is an information gap, especially for younger  students. They don't know what  is going to happen to them, and  there is such a tremendous interest in what is going on,"  Pope told the Coast News.  Staff at Chatelech met  Wednesday afternoon to discuss  what "approach" to take with  regard to their students' need to  express themselves on this issue.  "We discussed the walkout  yesterday and discouraged it  because we felt it was  unorganized and didn't want  the kids to show the wrong side  of themselves to the community," Pope said. "What we want  to do now is organize a forum,  bring in speakers, and talk  about how this affects the community."  At the Gibsons Legion Hall,  eight veterans of World War II  shared their feelings and opinions regarding the current conflict.  Not one of them had  anything negative to say about  the American-led invasion of  Iraq or of Canada's active role  in it. One vet urged that "...they  should hit them as hard as they  can! Canada should be more involved."

Coast News, January 21,1991  Message  in a  bottle  by Rose Nicholson  The flotsam and jetsam  washed up by the tides has  always held a fascination for  those of us who love to walk the  beaches. We come home with  pockets laden with curiously  shaped bits of stone or driftwood and reluctantly pass up  the larger chunks that look as if  they have come from some boat  thai may have broken up in a  winter storm.  The more imaginative ones  dream of finding a bottle with a  real message in it, thrown into  the ocean by a castaway on  some far distant Robinson  Crusoe island.  This dream came true last  week for two Wilson Creek  residents. Linda and Nels Lind-  strom found a real bottle, with a  real message in it, while they  were walking the beach at Davis  Bay.  "We were so excited," said  Linda. "We've never found  anything like this before."  The message was from an unnamed Grade 5 student in Raymond, Washington, who explained that their whole class  would launch SO bottles on  September  14,  1987, from a  Most of us only dream of finding a bottle on the beach wilh a real  message In It���but for Linda and Neb l.lndstrom this dream actually came true on one of their walks along the beach at Davis  Bay. ���Rom NMotaoa photo  fishboal just offshore from the  town.  She (or he) described the  town, and it sounded much like  either Gibsons or Sechelt. The  climate is mild and rainy, and  logging and fishing are the main  occupations. Going on to tell us  something about herself (or  himself), she/he said, "I bother  my Mom so I can get my  homework done so I can go  outside."  Linda phoned the school in  Raymond to tell them of the  find and was told that this bottle was the one that had traveled  the farthest and the longest.  Robinson Crusoe may have  been a figment of Daniel  Da foe's imagination, but a real  bottle, from a real youngster, in  a real town, found on the real  beach at Davis Bay, ��� that's  exciting!  School Board News  No help locally for  legal costs Incurred  by Joel Johnstone  The Ministry of Education  has refused to aid School  District 46 with the legal costs of  the court case brought by  Parents for French against the  District.  Minister Anthony Brummet  informed the Board that "it is a  School District's responsibility  to provide for any legal costs  within the block of funding  available. The Ministry will not  provide additional financial  support for these costs."  Secretary Treasurer Tim  Anderson told Trustees that recent negotiations with the  lawyers had reduced the original  Tee of $68,457. lo $50,000. He  said that although the District  does budget for legal fees, they  had not anticipated such a large  amount.  He went on to say that it will  be a month or more before it is  known what effect the legal bill  will have on this year's budget.  District enrollment, which af  fects provincial grants to the  District, is under review, and  Ministry expenditures are not  expected until May.  To compound the financial  problems, Anderson told the  Board that the province's Provisional Capital Plan Priorities  are being reviewed.  The Madeira Park Elementary School has received a 'low'  rating on the planned $1.3  million expansion. "We find  fault with this ranking," said  Anderson. "It should go from  'low' to 'high'."  But on a more optimistic  note, Davis Bay Elementary and  Cedar Grove Elementary  schools received 'high' ratings  for their respective $1.4 million-  plus upgrades. Site development  funding to rebuild unsafe playing fields at various schools also  received a 'high' rating.  Anderson said that the province's provisional budget is not  yet final. "It is hoped that all  'high' ratings will be funded.  although provincially these  amount to $685 million...I  believe that spending for the  previous year only amounted to  $125 million."  On a more positive note,  Anderson told Trustees that  "we've paid off one of our  bank loans, which is  marvelous." He said that the 20  year debenture had been paid  off in 16 years.  i  The Sunshine  Mi f IIWI  Is a member of the  Canadian  Community  Newspapers  Association  dedicated to presenting the  news of this community to  Its readers.  SCRD schedules ferry forum  Responding to the concerns,  confusion, and controversy  swirling around ihe possible introduction of a high-speed,  passenger-only ferry to the Sunshine Coast, SCRD Director  and Planning Committee Chairman Brett McGillivray has called lor a 20/20 forum on the entire ferry issue.  "We should invite people  such as Harold Long, Rita  Johnston, and Rod Morrison  (BC Ferries' General Manager)  ���among others," McGillivray  suggested at last Thursday's  meeting of ihe Planning Committee. "I am suggesting this in  reaction to (recent) political  statements and events unfolding."  Before agreeing to the proposal and deciding that il  should be held on Saturday,  February 23, the idea was briefly discussed and commented on  by members.  "I'm burned up about the  whole thing," said John  McNevin of Gibsons.  "Nobody's consulting with  anybody," he added, in  reference to the fact that decisions about the proposed  passenger-only ferry have apparently been made unilaterally  by persons removed from the  Sunshine Coasl.  "Bids have been asked (and  received)," remarked McNevin,  yQ You will receive a very special  ^Saf gift when you make your move  ALLIED  with Allied... and it's FREE!

Director Gordon Wilson  noted that "There is no  statistical evidence that this  (scheme) is going to fly." In a  letter released the next day (see  Letters to the Editor) Wilson  said "What 1 am opposed to is  the use of four to six million  dollars of taxpayers' money lo  subsidize a private service when  there are very real needs for the  upgrading of the existing ferry  service which already accomodates both walk-on and  vehicular traffic."

The fishing was great behind Henry's Bakery at the Sunnycresl  Mall ��� if you were a dummy, that Is! ���Jtn Michni Sherman photo  Warning  Consumer and Corporate Affairs Canada recently warned  consumers of leakage problems involving certain chemical  products, such as windshield washer antifreeze, paint thinners  and methyl hydrate, packaged in containers intended to be  child-resistant. Product Safety inspectors discovered the  potential hazard, mainly with four-litre containers, during inspections across Canada.  Problems to date have been found mainly with containers  that hare a tab on the cap and a safety stop projecting from  the container. Other types of child-resistant container systems  are also being Investigated.  by Rose Nicholson  The much touted Gibsons  bypass could turn out to be a  mixed blessing, ��� with the  Town of Gibsons ending up  with the short end of the stick.  Fred Jaremchuk, representing Northwest Life, owners of  Cedars Inn, warned Gibsons  Council that the bypass could  have serious financial repercussions for the town. "Our concern is that the bypass is going  to do a little more than bypass a  troublesome hill," he said at the  January IS Council meeting.  "It will bypass what we call  'motel and restaurant row' in  Gibsons."  Jaremchuk noted that he had  first expressed his concerns to  the previous Council in an  August 20, 1990 letter. Listing  the six motels and/or motor  inns, five restaurants and one  pub/restaurant, three service  stations, shopping centres and  assorted businesses in the strip  from North Road and along  Highway 101 to Pratt Road, he  said that the loss of tourist traffic could have a drastic effect on  all the businesses, and would  ultimately reduce the town's  taxation revenue.  "They (the businesses) get as  much as 25 to 30 per cent of  their annual business as a result  of traffic that is generated by  this highway," he said.  "Tourists do not go backward,  they usually go to the nearest  point ahead of them. Sechelt is  the next point ahead. They will  be the winner, and Gibsons will  be the loser."  Using what he admitted were  'ball park figures', Jaremchuk  estimated that current assessed  property values in the area  amounted to somewhere between SIS million to $20 million  which brings in about $500,000  to $600,000 a year in taxes.  "If we lose 25 to 30 per cent  of our business as a result of  this bypass," he said, "what  you're going to find is a reduction of property assessments,  because we, and everybody else,  are going to apply for relief  from taxes, ��� and we'll get it,  by virtue of the provincial  assessment authority.  "That could cost the town  $150,000 to $200,000 annually  in taxes, which would have to be  borne by the taxpayers of Gibsons. You'd have to tack it on  to their bill.  "There would also be reduced employment from loss of  business. Currently 150 to 200  people are employed in that  area. A 25 to 30 per cent loss of  jobs represents an annual  payroll of $500,000 to $1  million a year."  As an example of what could  happen here, Jaremchuk mentioned the "business failures,  reduced assessments and  massive layoffs" that occurred  when Fraser Canyon communities were bypassed by the  Coquihalla Highway.  "Since Expo 86, tourism in  Gibsons has been increasing  eight to 10 per cent a year. If  you bypass the tourist traffic,  the earnings of the town will  drop, and so will business earnings."  "We, and others along the  highway, derive as much as 50  per cent of our business from  tourists. With the bypass completely passing this area, we see  nothing but financial hardship.  A complete bypass of the town  is not a benefit to the businesses  that are in Gibsons, and certainly not to the town. Highways  would like to bypass every community in the world, and they  try to do it. The town of Gibsons has a responsibility to take  a very hard look at this.  "We put a lot of money into  the town of Gibsons at a time  when no one else would," he  added. "We transformed a  bankrupt situation into a good  motor inn.  "We're very concerned. We  have a lot of money invested in  the town. At the moment, we  see this as a major problem.  Mayor Eric Small told  Jaremchuk that although "it  was not policy to respond to a  delegation on the night of  presentation," he could be  assured that the matter would  be discussed at the next council  meeting.  In a conversation with the  Coast News, a member of the  Gibsons Chamber of Commerce said that so far, the question of the bypass had not been  discussed by the Chamber, but  would probably be brought up  at the next meeting.

Successful executives dream of  it and so do winos, clutching  their last bottles. It wasn't the  greatest trade on earth but, rain,  danger and all, it was what you  did. Mostly you stumbled into  it���few men went logging by  choice. Sometimes you stumbled away again, demeaned by the  insults of irascible hooktenders  and a way of life that seemed to  give no quarter. But if you  stayed, you became part of a  brotherhood.  Although he left the woods in  the sixties, Society Red McDer-  mott remains a member in good  standing of this hardy group.  On a recent visit to Vancouver,  he reminisced about a career  that took him all over the West  Coast and saw him rise from a  lowly chokerman to a top-notch  high-rigger.  Society Red was born in Edmonton but ran away from  home when he was IS. He and a  friend jumped a freight train  and rode the rods out to the  Coast. "I hit Vancouver with  two dollars in my pocket. This  was in the fall of 1941. My  friend got a job at the North  Vancouver Shipyards, but they  wouldn't take me for some  reason. The employment agent  said I'd have to go out to a logging camp. I wasn't keen on leav  ing Vancouver���I'd always  been a city boy���but they didn't  give me much choice. I was  literally pushed into the woods.  "So I went down to  Murphy's Agency on Cordova  Street, just off Carrali. It was in  the back of a pool hall. I didn't  know the first thing about the  woods. Old Murphy hired me as  a chokerman for Cowichan  Lake. I had no idea what the  job was. I made the mistake of  asking a foolish question. I'd  always been interested in sports  and I wondered if we'd be  anywhere near a town where I  could get involved in athletics.  Murphy looked surprised but he  was a kindly man. 'Listen, kid!'  he said, 'this is the woods  you're going to���not a summer  camp. Do you think those trees  grow out of the goddamn pavement?' "  Red headed for Lake  Cowichan without the vaguest  idea of what he was getting in  to. "Of course the first thing  that grabbed you about logging  camps as a kid was the enormous quantity of the food-  bearing in mind that this was  war-time. There was steak on  the table for breakfast, along  with eggs, bacon, sausages,  flapjacks and just about  everything else you could imagine. Kids have pretty good appetites and most of us would  overeat and get sick.  "Anyway I got my gear and  Benefit fund  screens petitioners  Approximately 40 applications for a share of the $20,000  "Community Benefits Fund",  established in October of 1990,  by Coast Cable Vision Limited,  have been received by the Company.  "The Fund was created to  celebrate the completion of 20  years of service by Coast Cable  Vision to residents of the Sunshine Coast and to reinvest in a  community that has solidly supported our operations over the  past two decades," said John  Thomas, President and General  Manager.  Applications for funding  range from a low of about $300  to the maximum amount  available and deal with a myriad  of concerns and agencies on the  Sunshine Coast. In total, the  applications for funding exceed  $200,000 of expressed community needs and represent a  wealth of opportunity for area  residents and volunteer involvement.  "Obviously it will not be  possible to please all groups that  have applied for financial  assistance but through our community programming facilities,  it may be possible to assist in a  direct, albeit nonmonetary  way," stated Thomas.  The decisions required to  make the awards will be made  during this month and made  public at a yet undisclosed date  in February 1991.

They used two sets of  chokers so you never got a  break between turns. I had trouble getting oriented at first. I'd  been brought up on the prairies  and I wasn't used to all those  trees and sidehills.  "One day they sent me down  with the lunchbuckets. I got lost  and broke one of the thermoses.  The hooktender was Slim  Walmsley, also known as the  'Mayor of the Skidroad'. He  and the other key men were all  hardboiled oldtimers. We  young guys were always getting  chewed out about being inferior  to the pre-war loggers. The talk  was all about The Big Canadian, Papersack Bronson, Step-  an-a-Half Phelps and other  famous characters.  "I never smoked or drank  much but 1 must be one of the  oldest snoose addicts in the  world. That's one habit I did  pick up in the woods. When I  went out on that skidder, the  old boys did the usual thing���  they offered me a chew of  snuff. It didn't make me sick  like it does a lot of guys.  'C'mon and take a decent  chew,' they said so 1 took two  or three more and still felt all  right. It was a game���a sort of  macho test. I didn't really like  the stuff but I figured it was  part of being a logger. So I  started asking for the odd chew.  After a couple of days, the joke  wore off. 'Look, kid', one crusty old logger told me finally,  'they got plenty of that stuff in  the goddamn commissary!' I  was humiliated. That night, I  bought a couple of boxes and  the next day, I offered snuff to  anyone who wanted it. That  was the beginning of my  lifelong snoose habit. It only used to cost a dime a box back  then. Now it's up to something  like $5.50."  To be continued,..

It  was a long show that ended late  followed by a first ferry back  from Vancouver and then the  unforgiving, non-negotiable insistences of production day at  the Coast's first and finest community newspaper.  These circumstances are not  new to this former editor-cum  delivery man-cum paste-up man  turned publisher and still,  sometimes yet, all of the above.  But it's been some years since  I faced production day having  been up virtually all night and  with a review to write to justify  this free-fall and no longer  characteristic behaviour in a  middle-aged man who is some  years a grandfather. It had to be  a special occasion and, folks,  I'm here to tell you that it was.  Long John Baldry turned 50  recently and friends and fans of  the legendary blues entertainer  celebrated the occasion last Friday night at the Commodore  Ballroom in Vancouver and this  scattered scribe of the morning  after was on that occasion  gloriously impervious to age  and responsibility and whistled  and roared and clapped his  unadulterated enthusiasm virtually throughout an almost  three-hour set with the long  man framed and supported, as  usual, by some of the finest  musicians within plane distance  of his Vancouver home.  Legendary musical figures  operate in a world impervious  to such mundane things as  daytime responsibilities and  deadlines of any kind. So it was  that the Baldry performance  was said to be supposed to begin  at 10 o'clock or half past. But in  fact the tall man didn't wander  onstage until almost midnight.  In the meantime, there was  dancing music and the superb  floor of the Commodore and I  was wearing my dancing shoes.  8:  Before the Baldry show started I  was spraying perspiration from  forehead to glasses and feeling  nostalgic for the wooden floor  of the Roberts Creek Hall and  the nights we kicked off our  gumboots and took on the  splinters in a fine and vanished  frenzy. There ain't nothin' like  a wooden dance floor.  Once on stage, Baldry was at  his finest obviously buoyed by  the occasion and the outpourings of affection and respect  from musicians and fans alike.  Six foot seven inches tall���they  don't call him Long John for  nothing���in a top hat and what  seemed satin or silk he prowled  the stage like an elegant and  graceful scarecrow.  The musicians were tight and  soaring, three dynamic female  vocalists led by the incomparable Kathi Macdonald���  who has appeared at Elphie's  Cabaret with Long  John���shared the spotlight with  the tall man.  It was that most wonderful of  coincidences, an old pro at absolutely the peak of his powers  and the songs came powerful  and moving, driving and  dynamic.  Very few were dancing on the  Commodore floor during the  Baldry set. Oh, the floor was  crowded alright, but with people standing transfixed and  delighted as Baldry and his top-  class band delivered a magic,  compelling and heartwarming  evening.  "Don't Lay No Boogie-  Woogie on the King of Rock  and Roll", with its long and  comic introduction in classic  Baldry manner, followed by the  intensely moving and beautiful  "That Loving Feeling" sung  sublimely by Baldry and Kathi  Macdonald were the back to  back climax of the show, the  high points, perhaps, but  honestly there were no low  point on this night. Baldry gave  us the old T-Bone Walker  classic Stormy Monday, explaining that the first time he  sang it he was called up on stage  to do so because the blues  legend was too drunk to sing it  on that occasion.  He left us finally, at three  o'clock in the morning with a  powerful and haunting rendition of "It Ain't Nobody's  Business What I Do." Interjecting just before the last refrain,  "Boy, have I had fun tonight,"  Long John brought the house  down again with the refrain and  turned and stalked off the stage  and the three-hour marathon of  magic and music was over.

Oh there's so much more a  well-rested reviewer with more  time could touch on: the  dynamic blonde lady saxophonist; the keyboard player;  the guitarists; the blues harmonica; even occasionally a  soaring trumpeter. And always  Baldry nodding and listening  appreciatively to everyone's  solos and undulating back to  grab the microphone at the last  possible second and turn loose  that remarkable voice.

Coast News, January 21,1991  by Jan Michael Sherman  If God intended Canadians to  play underwater hockey, Foster  Hewitt would be alive and sporting gills!  This proposition is quite obviously as false as it is true that  underwater hockey is probably  here to stay.  This relatively off-beat  sport's latest local manifestation  takes the form of a tournament  to be held on January 26, from  10:30 am to 2:30 pm, at the  Gibsons Pool. The general  public is invited to fall by and  catch some of the action.  The Suncoast Aquahawks  will be hosting the potluck affair, and the organization is expecting players from the Vancouver area, from Simon Fraser  University, and Victoria.  A "potluck" tourney is one  in which competing teams will  be organized at the pool after all  players are registered. Registration will begin at 10 am, with  play slated a half hour later.

For more information,  call 886-7372 during Ihe evening.  by Hairy Turner  A few more sweeping tips this  week. In order to be a good  sweeper, it is necessary lo concentrate on what is happening in  the game. A good sweeper  knows the approximate speed of  the travelling slone and should  be able to anticipate if the rock  should be swept for weight, (hat  is to determine if the rock is going to get to the house with or  without help.  A rock that is not swept can  fall short of its target position  and a rock that is swept, but  should not have been, may go  right through the house.  Developing judgement for when  10 sweep and when not to sweep  requires watching the course of  every stone. Many of Ihe national championship teams  carry a stopwatch to help decide  what a stone's running time is  so they can adjust their sweeping accordingly. This can help a  lot in determining the weight of  a running stone.  Men's hockey  It is also important to develop  good rhythm and coordination  with your sweeping partner.  The curler sweeping alongside  the stone is referred to as the inside sweeper. It is this sweeper's  job lo judge the weight of the  slone and start the sweeping.  The inside sweeper should  sweep as close to the stone as  possible, yet keep enough  distance between the broom and  the slone to keep from rubbing  or burning it.  The rules say a running stone  which is touched by any player  or ihe equipment of a player,  shall be removed from play immediately by that team, except  where in the opinion of the opposing skip, removing the  touched slone would not be  beneficial, the stone shall be  placed by Ihe skip of the opposing team as nearly as possible to  the position where he considers  il would have come to rest, and  similarly reposition any stone or  stones the touched stone would  have displaced...  The other sweeper is referred  to as the outside sweeper. This  player also judges the weight,  but Ihe inside sweeper remains  in charge al all times. This  sweeper should sweep as closely  to the inside sweeper as possible  without interfering with the  stroke or rythm of Ihe inside  sweeper.  Beginners often make the  mistake of staying too close to  the inside sweeper causing the  sweeper to be pushed back  against the rock so that a fall is  caused or the rock is burned.  Two sweepers operating  together in rythmn is a delight  to behold and gives the rock  every chance lo make it to its  proper destination.  The two most critical limes in  sweeping a rock are al the  beginning and end of the sweeping course.  At the beginning, both  sweepers should begin to move  slightly forward ahead of the  player   delivering   the   slone.  Another beginner's error is to  get into the line of sight of the  player delivering the stone..It is  important not to move toward  the center of the ice too soon  before the shooter has released  the stone.  At the end of the sweeping,  many a stone has been lost by  not making the final brush away  from the course of the stone. If  the sweeper picks up the brush  immediately when the skip calls  stop, debris is often left in front  of the stone face causing the  stone to come to a sudden halt  or drastically alter its course.  Be sure to finish the final  brush across the face of the  stone before you lift your  brush. A sweeper with a broom  is less likely to have this problem since a broom  automatically flips from side to  side and is almost impossible to  stop directly in front of the  stone. So remember, finish that  last stroke before you lift your  brush.

The request to have the  deadline extended came at the  special council meeting held  Wednesday, January 16, when  Russ Olson, president of the  company developing the course,  assured council that despite the  fact that the terms of the  original agreement with council  had yet to be fulfilled, an extension of five months would see  the necessary funding achieved.  Under the original agreement, dated November 21,  1990, Sechelt Golf Management  was to have half of the  estimated necessary capital  ($2.65 million) in hand by  January 31, and was to have  completed a survey of the proposed course by an independent  firm to ascertain the accuracy of  the $2.65 million estimate.  The desired half of the capital  Funding pursued  Extension granted  Sechelt Golf Club  Coast News, January 21,1991  19.  was to have come from the sale  of 50 charter memberships in  the course (limited  partnerships), but only eight  have been sold to date. Olson  pointed out, however, that three  of those eight had been sold in  the last week and said that  things would pick up now that  the weather was becoming more  conducive to golf.  Olson said his firm was now  in the process of canvassing  North and West Vancouver and  would be using the services of a  sales agent, something it hadn't  done before. "We don't have  an extensive track record (in  golf courses), but we've put  together the right people," said  Olson, adding that response to  the idea has been  "exceptional", but that people  are reluctant to actually sign a  cheque when the current  deadline was January 31.  Council, legally unable to  give Olson's request a response  for a 24 hour period, scheduled  a special meeting for Friday,  January 18, where it was  thought by Olson that the requested time extension would be  granted.  At the January 18 meeting,  however, council unexpectedly  went in-camera for over an  hour, leaving Olson to contemplate his possible fate in the  hallway.  In the end, council granted  the extension, but on the condition that 100 per cent of the funding be assured at the end of  June. If it was not, the agreement would be null and void.  The council was adamant  that this would be the one and  only extension provided to  Sechelt Golf Management.  Alderman Doug Reid noted  "rather than seeking more con  cessions   from  council,  you  should get on with business."  In addition to requiring 100  per cent of the financing to be  done by June 30, council required Olson to have an independent surveyor complete a  survey by February 28, an accomplishment Olson grudgingly  admitted was possible.  The independent survey is a  last "out" for both the  developers and the council. At  present, the $2.65 million is an  estimate based on past experiences, not on an actual  survey of the land. If the independent survey comes in with  a cost that is much higher than  that, due to unexpected circumstances, both parties are  free to step out of the deal.  The Municipality of Sechelt  has already made a profit from  the proposed course; according  to Town Administrator  Malcolm Shanks, it was paid  approximately $810,000 for the  trees logged off the property  and, after the expenses of clearing the land etc., has realized a  gain of somewhere around  $400,000.  Arts Centre 1991 Season begins  The Arts Centre begins the  1991 exhibition season with  "Friends of the Gallery",  January 23 to February 10. The  works you will see in this show  are the personal choices of artists on the Sunshine Coast,  with the selection relatively un-  skewed by curatorial prejudice.  The only limitation exercised  was imposed by available  space...subject to that consideration and with the  guarantee that at least one of  everybody's submissions would  be displayed, the exhibition  represents the sum of what our  varied visual arts community  wants to show.  This unjuried format provides an opportunity for artists,  who have never shown before,  to see their work in company  with a whole spectrum of  assorted media and at varying  levels of accomplishment.  Seasoned artists have also submitted their work as a gesture of  support for the Arts Centre.  The reception on Saturday,  January 26,2 pm, will bring exhibitors and viewers together  for relaxed and informal discussion of the work on display, upcoming exhibitions, work in  progress, and other topics of in  terest. Get the Arts Centre off  to a pleasant start and visit with  friends. Refreshments will be  served.  Regular Arts Centre hours  beginning January 23 are  Wednesday to Saturday, 11 am  to 4 pm, and Sunday, 1 to 4 pm.  The gallery is located at Trail  and Medusa in Sechelt. Call  885-5412 for more information.

On Sunday afternoon,  February 3, there will be a very  special treat at the Arts Centre.  A romantic concert of Love  Songs with soprano Helene  McDonald, bass-baritone  William Kelly, and pianist Ailsa  Zaenker that will be coupled  with an elegant afternoon tea.  The program includes favourite  solos and duets from opera and  musical theatre, some serious,  some whimsical, on that  timeless topic ��� Love.  Helene McDonald has performed many roles with the  Vancouver Opera and Northwest Opera and has toured extensively with the highly successful Vancouver Opera Touring Ensemble. Her busy  schedule also includes performances in oratorio, sacred and  gospel music, musical theatre  and popular music.  Many of us will remember  William Kelly's splendid performance with the Sunshine Coast  Music Society's 1989 Christmas  Concert. He is in much demand  as a soloist and has appeared  with the Victoria Symphony,  the Bach Choir, the Handel  Society and many other BC  musical organizations.  Ailsa Zaenker, pianist cum  'pit orchestra' for this concert  has distinguished herself in the  musical life of the West Coast  as a soloist, chamber musician,  teacher and lecturer and is in  constant demand as an accompanist. She has performed in  numerous concerts and CBC  broadcasts and has been pianist  with the Vancouver Opera  Touring Ensemble for several  seasons. Ailsa recently performed Ravel's Piano Concerto in  'G' with the Vancouver  Chamber Players.  Tickets for this very special  event are $10 and are available  at Talewind Books and the Arts  Centre in Sechelt, Seaview  Market in Roberts Creek, and  Coast Bookstore in Gibsons.  Don't miss this elegant celebration of the month of love!  Images and Objects  Every year the Assembly of  BC Arts Councils coordinates a  Provincial exhibition as part of  the BC Festival of the Arts. The  works are selected through,  qualifying regional shows which  are juried throughout the province. The 9th Images and Objects Exhibition will be juried at  the Arts Centre in Sechelt,  March 10.  Any artist or artisan resident  on the Sunshine Coast may  enter this all media regional  show. If selected, the work then  goes on to be part of the Provincial exhibition. Entry forms  with all information are now  available at the Arts Centre and  the Hunter Gallery (Lower Gibsons).  Jurors this year will be Keith  Wallace, free lance curator and  writer, and Lynda Gammon, of  Victoria. Deadline for entry  forms and works is Saturday,  March 9, at the Arts Centre.  For further information call  Belinda MacLeod at 886-7592.  Another conflict  War Report  by R.P. Handling  Huge casualties were inflicted  by Blofeld-MacDonald mountain troops on giant Sitka  spruce and Douglas firs today  during the continuing offensive  on the Western Vancouver  Island front. Using newly  developed International  Harvester Hydraulic Tree Croppers, the spruce and firs fell in  record time putting up insignificant resistance to the troops'  latest technology.  This particular unit of spruce  and fir was ferreted out by  Ministry of Forestry Intelligence  Service using the NAVCOM III  satellite launched last March for  just such surveillance purposes.  No BloMac casualties were  reported, however the troops'  lines of communication were  temporarily interrupted by an  enemy dense ground fog which  emerged shortly after the men  were landed from Huey Kiowa  helicopters.  The fog incursion was quickly dispursed by Hellfire 500 mT  smudge pots scattered around  the secure landing area.  Mort Chemical shock troops  are massing in the Tofino area  in preparation for Bush Suppression chemical raids on the  newly liberated clearcut areas.  This operation is expected to be  launched within the next 18  hours. The area will be softened  up before hand by MOF low  level Flameout air operations to  eliminate any remnant slash left  behind from the spruce and fir  units.  Apart from the giant trees,  the forces of Nature were hit  hard by the dawn operation. Initial reports from the BloMac  Intelligence Officer at Tofino  indicate that 17 Douglas squirrels, 43 red-backed voles, eight  pileated woodpeckers, two  marbled murrelets, one doe,  three fawns, a black bear cub,  125 wrentits and numerous  other unspecified organisms  were eliminated.  The BloMac 10 summed up  the operations by stating, "We  hit them hard with our initial  assault and our follow-up will  give the enemy no respite until  its forces are driven out of the  area."  News of the successful mission was greeted on the Vancouver Stock Exchange with a  flurry of trading which  culminated in a sizeable increase  in the value of Blofeld-  MacDonald shares. However,  this development was balanced  by sleep reductions in commodity prices for Sitka spruce  and Douglas fir raw logs and  milled lumber.  Classical guitar  The Pender Harbour School of Musk will be presenting  Clarke Steabner in an evening of Spanish classical guitar  music on Friday, January 25 at 7:30 pm at 'Rosie's Canteens'  in the musk school.  A Mexican food plate is included in the $10 tkltets which  are on sale at Sunny's in Madeira Park.  The Society's Christmas Concert was a huge success, both  for participants and audience. An added bonus was $675 that  goes towards the piano fund.  ft  NEW LIFE FELLOWSHIP  CENTRE  New Testament Church  8838 Wharf Rd., Sechelt  Sun. Worship Service     10:30 am  Wed.

For some puzzling reason, 30  BC travellers lost keys this year  in Scarborough, Ontario.  All come back through  Canada Post if key-chains cany  the secret-number mini-tags of  the Tuberculous and Chest  Disabled Veterans Association.  The secret number, known  only to the individual and the  TB Vets, enable the latter (comprised of 25 disabled workers at  headquarters in Vancouver) to  trace the owners.  Located was the New  Westminster longshoreman who  dropped his keys onto a conveyor belt and accidently sent  ihem by ship to Copenhagen.  Identified for Penticton  RCMP was the body found in  Lake Okanagan (after 18 months, the TB Vet tag was still legible.)  Nabbed by Vancouver police  was a clumsy car-thief who had  dropped his own set of keys in a  stolen vehicle.  The TB Vets have traced  owners of 129,458 sets of keys  since the system was started by  disabled servicemen following  World War II.  Though the service is free, TB  Vets rely on donations from  British Columbians such as the  boater whose keys were found  by a scuba diver in English Bay,  the climber whose keys were  found in melting snow on Mt.  Robson, and the factory-owner  whose lost keys wound up in the  Azores (the sailor who found  them waited for the first  available mailbox.)  Total of 999,751 secret-  number tags are being mailed  now to residents throughout the  province.  Proceeds of the 46th annual  campaign are used to keep those  25 disabled persons employed  year-round and for grants to BC  hospitals for diagnostic equipment and research into  respiratory diseases. In the past  decade, more than $2.5 million  has gone to 50 BC hospitals.  Those not receiving tags in  the mail by mid-January may  obtain them by calling  1-800-665-7796 toll free.

Electric Plus users, who now  pay 2.5 cents per kilowatt (half  the regular rate) will be charged  3.3 cents per kilowatt (two-  thirds the regular rate). Residential, commercial and industrial  customers will be persuaded to  switch to natural gas heating to  replace the Electric Plus system,  which they had to install as a  duplicate because Electric Plus  required a full back-up heating  system for times when BC  Hydro interrupted service. BC  Hydro is now saying, "To  ��� change from Electric Plus, ...  your local Hydro office ... will  show you how easy it is."  In 1987, it was telling  customers how easy it was to  change to Electric Plus ��� at 2.5  cents per kilowatt. By the end of  ' 1989, with the incentive of BC  Hydro financing, 15,000  customers had made investments ranging from a few  hundred dollars to a few thousand to take advantage of the  program. Many were advised to  expect to recover their costs in  10 years, but this is unlikely if  the proposed 32 per cent rate increase is approved.  To add insult to injury, BC  Hydro is now telling Electric  Plus customers that one alternative is to invest another $2000  to $3000 to switch to gas. Apparently, BC Hydro doesn't  understand that many Electric  Plus customers are on a fixed  income, and can't afford to  throw good money after bad.  Since there is no shortage of  intemiptible power (BC Hydro  has just established a new subsidiary to sell interruptible  power to industrial users) Electric Plus customers may want to  respond to BC Hydro's rate increase proposal by writing to  the BC Utilities Commission,  which will be asked to approve  the increase. Write to:  Mr. John G. Mclntyre,  Chair and CEO  BC Utilities Commission,  Box 250, 900 Howe Street  Vancouver, BC V6Z 2EI  The Commission will want to  know all the implications of an  increase before it is approved.  Anne Edwards  MLA ��� Kootenay  New Democrat  Spokesperson for Energy  Kinsmen call for donations  Editor:  Every January 15 to 31, the  Kinsmen Club of Gibsons and  District with the help of local  volunteers canvass door to door  for donations to the Kinsmen  Mother's March. Your support  as both contributors and  mother's marchers has been  greatly appreciated.  Due to the fact that our  Kinsmen Hall burned down last  April and our membership is  only at eight, our manpower is  only capable of concentrating  on rebuilding our hall, which  must be completed by April of  this year. Therefore, we will not  be able to canvass personally.  Mother's March Headquarters  will be sending out mailers for  your donations in the next couple of weeks.  Anyone interested In finding  out more about your local  Kinsmen Club or in assisting us  A mother's plight  in any way, please contact Rick  Wray, 886-7838, or James  Rhodes, 885-6226.  James Rhodes, President  Kinsmen Club of Gibsons  and District  Editor:  I have recently returned to  Gibsons and I am finding it impossible to rent for myself and  my four and two year old  children.

Not one of the eight possible  landlords that turned us down  over the phone had even met me  or my children.

Gavel gestures  Mayor Eric Small of Gibsons has a new gavel. It was  presented to him al the January 15 council meeting by former  Alderman Stu Metcalf.  "When Eric was campaigning," said Metcalf, "I told him  if he got in as Mayor I would make him a gavel."  Metcalf said that the new gavel was made from a piece of  acacia wood from a tree that once grew across the street from  the council chambers. The old gavel, which Metcalf also  made and presented to former mayor Larry Labonte, was  made from a piece of holly that grew in Labonte's yard.  "We will have to find a suitable occasion to present this  (the old one) to Larry," said Small.

Liberal leader warns followers  Spring vote coming  by Rose Ntdwhon  "We are the vehicle for  change," provincial Liberal  leader Gordon Wilson told a  core group of his supporters last  week. "What we have to put to  the people of the province is this  simple���'if you want change in  British Columbia, then you're  going to have to put another  political party in Victoria, a party that is prepared to put in  place political reform.' "  In an informal luncheon  meeting at Pebbles Restaurant  in Sechelt, Wilson's three point  speech covered the current  status of his party in BC, preelection strategy, and the Gulf  crisis.  Wilson said that results of recent polls show that British Columbians are dissatisfied with  the status quo. "They're not  making the distinction of which  political party you're a member  of. If you're a politician, you're  suspect. If you're an incumbent, they want you out.  "The reasons are that the  parliamentary process has been  so corrupted, so abridged, so  abused by the current governments in power, both federally  and provincially, that people are  losing faith in the system. They  no longer believe that the  system serves their interests.  That's a dangerous thing to  happen, because it means that  the faith in democracy becomes  shaken to the extent that a  handful of people can come in  and seize power very easily, and  then use that power for private  personal gain.  "That's happened both  federally and provincially. People recognize it, and they want a  change.  "We have to demonstrate the  one simple message,���we are  the only vehicle for that change.  There is no other political party  in a position to form either an  opposition government or possibly to hold the balance of  power in a minority government. A minority government  right now may be the best thing  British Columbians could hope  for. But you will only get a  minority when you have three  or more parties elected."  Wilson 'guesstimated' that  there will be a provincial election by about mid-March.  Although he sees the NDP as a  "very formidable opponent",  he was very optimistic about his  party's prospects, but stressed  the need to run a "flawless campaign."  "There are a lot of people  who are prepared to come on  board and work on the campaign who are not Liberals, who  have no particular desire to be a  member of the Liberal Party,  but who believe there has to be  alternatives in British Columbia.  "With the 25 candidates  already in place and the five or  six more that will come in the  next few weeks, we will have a  solid group of people running  under the Liberal banner. It is  my intention to have one  member in every riding. It's the  first time we've done that since  the early 1970's."  Wilson was highly critical of  Canada's (and the US's) actions  in the Gulf crisis. Repeating the  gist of a speech he made at last  week's large peace rally in Vancouver, he called the arbitrary  January IS deadline "insane"  and said that the sanctions  would have worked if given  enough time.  "We have embarked on the  adventures of war," he  declared, "primarily to satisfy  an American agenda which is  driven by the major oil companies."  Again commenting on what  he called "the erosion of the  parliamentary system in  Canada," Wilson said that "the  Prime Minister has acted  without the authority of Parliament to commit Canadian  forces into a situation where we  will be in conflict...It means  that Canada will be engaged in  an act of war without Parliament having debated and sanctioned the action. Our position  is that the Prime Minister does  not have the authority to do  that.  "We, through the efforts of  Lester B. Pearson, built  ourselves a reputation for being  peace keepers, people who were  prepared to involve ourselves  with the United Nations to keep  and maintain peace.  "To the extent that we are  going to be asked to do that by  the UN, we should respond  positively. But it is unacceptable  that Canadians be dragged into  an action by narrow interests in  the Middle East.  "It is incumbent on every one  of us to let the Prime Minister  know that this is unacceptable."  Sechelt Council  taken to task  The Sechelt Council, the Committee for Public Works in  particular, was taken to task by a 50-year resident of the  Coast it the January 16 meeting.  Mrs. E. Uste of Davis Bay spoke al the council meeting  about the poor quality and lack of work being done by toe  department of Public Works In the Davis Bay area. "The last  rain storm we had, the water was running down the streets  and people's driveways because the ditches were blocked  up."  Mrs Uste said that nothing had been done In Davis Bay  since that community was incorporated into, and began paying taxes to, the Municipality of Sechelt In July of 1986.  "We pay taxes...What are you waiting for, a grant?" she  demanded lo know. She was told by the committee Chairman  Bob Wilson that her complaint was not uncommon and more  effort would be made in the future to address the problem.
